In Tesla, Richard Munson presents a comprehensive portrait of this farsighted and underappreciated mastermind." -- Publisher's description
Summary
Describes how the formerly unappreciated scientist and inventor with the bizarre personal life and enigmatic behavior contributed so much to our modern world, including plans for cell phones, the internet, death-ray weapons and interstellar communications in the early 1900s
